UT on Windows 7?

A buddy of mine installed the new Microsoft operating system beta called Windows 7. He then installed UT and said it played well. He then tried to install a few UMODS and all of them failed with similar errors to what you get when you install UT and then move it to a different folder and then try to use a UMOD. Windows wants to associate a program to the UMOD. He insists that he did not move UT from C:\UnrealTournament which is where he installed it to. Any ideas?

Might be a wild guess but sounds like something in the registry got messed up. (Don't know how Win 7 does registries now)

You could try to find a UT Registry Fix program to see if that might work...

Make sure he runs umods with administrative rights (right click Run As Administrator or start the UMOD installation from Administrator Command Prompt.

OK

OK I have heard the suggestion and will pass it on to him. He said he copied the old original UT folder into and over his newest one and everything started working right. So he has his old UT in his new registered UT location and it works.

I agree. I think he did something wrong in the first place and screwed the pooch during install. His solution worked but it isn't the way I suspect we would do it ourselves. Thanks all.

Personal experience:

If I installed and updated from my original UT CD, umods wouldn't be a problem, but Anthology install causes umod screwups.

Tried

I have not had him try the suggestions yet but he alerted me that even after installing his old copy over the new one he was NOT able to run umods. He said it had worked before to me becasue all of the files he needed from the umods where already installed and thus were working. So what I'm saying here is that if he tries to run a UMOD now it still doesn't work. He said it did work because the umods had alreay installed all of the files he had needed when he was able to run them before in his previous version of windows which he copied into and over his new version in Windows 7. Blah blah blah.

I'll point him to this and let him do what he wants. Thanks all!

he has to make the installer recognize the format. I think Skillz had a tutorial on how to do it manually.

Sounds like somebody has not heard of the umod browser.

I have Win7 too. But I barely use it now, as UT2004's UnrealEd totally doesn't work. UnrealEd2 works only with Software Mode, not D3D, so that's also not good.

However, I think that installing a DirectX redistributable might solve the issues... Looks like MS forgot to add some old DirectX files.

The conversation around here (#368-370) looks to be relevant:
